    I like Rick's energy. He ran a campaign on guts and hard work, not multi-millions from the 1%'ers, who expect that their tax rates will be protected.

    Looks like Rick is setting himself up as the next in-line for 2016 or 2020.

    Yeah. We already knew that. You are a Santorum supporter. Even keeled and undecided for November.

    What a crock of shit.

    Rick will not run in 2012. It will be Mitt v Obama. What other democrats do you see in 2016 comparable to Rick? Rick is a good debater, and when he learns to stay on message and keep his religious beliefs to himself, he will be a very strong conservative candidate.

    p.s. I support competence. I liked the Clinton years as an example. Got another Bill Clinton in the wings?

    Doesn't take away from the truth of what he said.

    Personally, I'm not thrilled with Rick's religious fanaticism. But I think he's the first Republican in a long time who actually gets it on the fact that we can't have an economy that only benefits the wealthy while our middle class cities are rotting from the inside out.

    Spent the last week in Cleveland for a conference. If you want to see where the Romney Republicans are going to take us, spend a week there. Empty factories, empty neighborhoods, crumbling infrastructure.

    Yeah.....the best way to set oneself up for victory in 2016 is to stay in the 2012 race long after it becomes clear that one has no chance.

    My goodness. A Clinton supporter who says he can support Santorum......with a straight face!

    Obama is very close to Clinton ideologically. Just ask Bill himself. Those who supported Clinton have absolutely no trouble supporting Obama.

    BTW.....Obama is extremely competent. You should love the guy.
